The School of Business at the Karachi Institute of Technology and Entrepreneurship incorporates the rigor of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), with the critical thinking skills associated with social sciences, and rounds it off with an applied education about the fundamentals of business.
Consistent with a mission to produce a critical mass of citizens with a “can-do” attitude, graduates from the School of Business will be able to hit the ground running upon completing the four year undergraduate program.
As the country’s first truly “tech-centric” business school, the School of Business incorporates the three fundamental pillars of the ecosystem at KITE. By combining a robust knowledge of computing with the fundamentals of business and the social sciences, the curriculum at the School of Business is truly inter-disciplinary. Since computing is a ubiquitous tool in the world of business, and given the strong linkages with industry that KITE possesses, students at the School of Business will focus on the application of knowledge throughout their undergraduate years. Ultimately, the School of Business aims to train entrepreneurs – individuals who can identify business problems, create ideas, and then execute those ideas.
The School of Computing at the Karachi Institute of Technology and Entrepreneurship incorporates the logical and computational education at the core of any good computer science program, with a well-rounded curriculum of social sciences, while also focusing on developing students’ entrepreneurial skills.
The School of Computing aims to produce graduates with a thorough grasp of the fundamental concepts in computer science, and their applications. Furthermore, as a part of KITE’s ecosystem, the School will require graduates to explore other disciplines, such as the fundamentals of business, the social sciences and design concepts, and help them launch their own ideas and ventures while at the University.
Programs at the School will include coursework, labs and project-based learning and offer both a theoretical and practical grounding in computer science, as well as depth of knowledge in specialized fields. Students will acquire a strong foundation in math, physics, programming languages, software engineering, computer architecture and data structures and algorithms. They will also gain insight into the practical issues of building and maintaining effective computer systems and databases for different industries. Information security and networks, human-computer interaction and artificial intelligence are other components of the program.
KITE’s 4-year undergraduate degree programs will teach critical thinking to engineers, giving them a strong foundation in theory, relevant hands-on experience, technical specialization and expertise. Engineering education at KITE combines rigorous training in engineering fundamentals and applications with essential knowledge through the KITE core curriculum of liberal arts, design, computing and entrepreneurship courses.
The School of Arts & Architecture at KITE is designed to be an inventive place of learning. The campus itself has been designed to reflect the philosophy at KITE – and the programs at the Design School will in turn reflect that philosophy. In an environment that encourages students to collaborate with each other while challenging their own limits, the School is committed to a transformative impact on its surroundings.
As a part of the ecosystem at KITE, students at the School of Arts & Architecture will get a chance to work with students in other programs, initially helping them design products, online portals, and marketing materials for their projects, but eventually contribute works of both value and beauty to the community around KITE.
Students at the School of Arts & Architecture will also learn to use the most relevant computer design tools available in this day and age so that their ideas can be translated into a tangible form. In essence, the School will provide its graduates with the critical balance between aesthetics and practicality.
